About this project

Ideal for tabletop role-playing and war gaming!

I love tabletop role-playing and 3D, so it was only natural for me to want to combine the two. In addition to playing a lot of fantasy tabletop role-playing games like Dungeons & Dragons and Pathfinder, I spend a lot of time playing sci-fi games like Star Wars and Traveller, and very soon Starfinder. However, I noticed that there are limited options when it comes to Sci-Fi themed 3D printed tile sets, especially for spaceship deck plans, which I love!

NOTE: These are STL files only – you will need to print them yourselves, either with your own 3D printer or via a printing service.  

Useful for both tabletop roleplaying and war gaming, you can use these tiles to enhance your gaming experience in a modular fashion.

Pricing is in SEK (Swedish kronor), and around 80:- is equivalent to $10 USD.

Mid-Campaign Add-Ons!

By popular demand, we have added some highly detailed add-ons! You can grab them by increasing your pledge by the indicated amount! Don't worry, we will sort out all the details at the end of the campaign with a pledge manager!

So far we have the Space Fighter and Gargantuan Drive, but soon we will also be adding the Bridge Set!

Where Does Your Money Go?

I've spent a good while modelling and printing everything you see here in the rewards and a good deal more. The proceeds of this kickstarter will go back into creating additional content in the future, as well as to 3D printing equipment and software.

Pledges

You can pledge for the various ship ranks below at discounted rates, or purchase items individually as desired. Pledge the total amount you wish to contribute. At the end of the campaign, a pledge manager will be made available where you can adjust your final pledge.

Stretch Goals!

We did it! We just passed another stretch goal, which means that every backer of the Master Chief pledge level or above gets a series of hatches added to their pledges! This will include a floor hatch, floor airlock, and floor cargo airlock.

We're currently working on 90,000 SEK which will unlock a massive propulsion system 2 by 4 and 3 by 6 tiles in size!

100,000 SEK and Beyond!

At 100,000, we are going to be adding portholes and windows to our three different wall types! The size of the actual windows will depend on the style of wall.  

I will also announce that after 100,000, we will be making a significant jump to 125,000 SEK. The reason is that if for some insane reason that we can actually attain the goal, I would love to do a detail pass on the core assets. 

As you have seen from some of my latest offerings, I have been adding a lot more detail to the models. So much so, that I feel that the original tiles could use a bit more love. By adding some additional geometry to provide more bevelled edges and more interesting surface features, I feel the original campaign models could really pop. This of course would be a lengthier process, but don't worry - I will send out the original base tiles at the end of October and then send out the detail pass when it is done, along with the remaining unmodelled stretch goals and commisisons.  

But fear not! For despite the large jump in numbers, the road to greater detail is far from a desolate landscape, and I will be releasing some bonus tiles! Basically, for every 5000 SEK, I will add at least one bonus tile to the mix. These will most likely be variants of the base tiles - new habitation room variant layouts, floor tile variants, and the like.

We had to move onto a new image for our stretch goals! Here is the old one!

Here are some renders of the unlocked Stretch Goals so far! These are just a taste! Most of these offerings will have several different variants!

The Sets

You can pledge for these tile sets individually by pledging for the rewards above.

The Expansions

You can pledge for the expansions individually by pledging for the rewards above.

Add Ons

Add ons are in addition to the pledges above. This means that you must add an additional amount to your final pledge. At the end of the campaign you will be sent a pledge manager where you can declare the items you added.

Please note that the Stretch Goals are added for free to all pledges of Master Chief or higher.

 

Stretch Goals

If we beat our initial goal, I will be expanding the contents of the Master Chief and better pledges to include additional models! The Stretch Goals pledge can be added separately if you just want the extras! We don't want to spoil everything, but expect to see control elements, ways to move between decks and additional surprises!

Detailed Enough to Be Interesting, Generic Enough to Be Reusable

Although cost effective in the long run, printing terrain does take a considerable amount of time, and to make up for this investment, we have tried to focus on reusability. We decided to keep the pieces generic enough to be reusable time and time again in different scenes, but interesting enough that they should not feel too boring.

Most of the models shown have been printed at 200 microns (0.2 mm/layer) and take an average of 30-60 minutes per piece on my Flashforge Creator Pro. Higher detail is of course possible by increasing the settings or better printing techniques. 

Easy to Paint 

Our sci-fi tiles take advantage of the tell-tale patterns that 3D printers leave on the items printed. With even just a quick coat of base paint, shade and a dry brushing, the patterns actually are accentuated and look like bolts and grates, creating interesting terrain in a short amount of time. Adding a splash of colour after the base paint phase, can really lift the piece with minimal effort. 

Each piece shown used the above process and took no longer than 10 cumulative minutes (and usually less than 5) to paint. I am by no means a great painter, and these are all quick jobs. Multiple coats and mad painting skills will of course produce better results.

Commissions

Some rewards offer commissions, given in hours of labour. This is the amount of time that we will use to sketch out and model a design for tiles, objects or creatures. Commissioned work will require a small consultation for a part of your time via mail correspondence or other media. Reference images are a bonus. 

The list below can tell you approximately what a commissioned time period will allow for. 

  • 2-hours - A 2x2 tile, or wall piece, or two 1x1 tiles of simple design 
  • 5-hours - Several of the above or a simple robot design 
  • 10-hours - A combination of the above, a complex robot design or an organic creature. 

2nd Dynasty retains all the rights for any commissioned works, which cannot infringe on other peoples copyrights. The commissioned works will be included in the Commander and higher reward levels.

Commissioned works are not for resale, although you may contact me for separate commissions with different agreement terms.

OpenLOCK License

All tiles are compatible with the amazing OpenLOCK system created by Printable Scenery, so you can mix and match and supplement our tiles with products from their line and the dozens of other suppliers of OpenLOCK-compatible scenery.

Special Thanks to:

Ola Larsson for his incredible sci-fi backgrounds, and Hannes and Martin at the Wintergatan youtube channel for their help with filming and editing the pitch video.

Risks and challenges

There are very few risks and challenges for this project, since most of the sets are already complete and ready for printing. Of course, any stretch goals or commissions will take additional time to complete. The modelling process however is straight forward, and, if necessary, we work with a variety of modellers that can be called in to work on the project at short notice, if needed.

Excessive commissioned files or reaching stretch goals may delay production by a few weeks, depending on the volume.

There is a small chance that there may be issues with STLs for you and your printer. I will do what I can to help fix any issues with the files themselves, although do not offer tech support for 3D printing.
